Jim Butcher is the author of the Dresden Files, the Codex Alera, and a new steampunk series, the Cinder Spires. His resume includes a laundry list of skills which were useful a couple of centuries ago, and he plays guitar quite badly. An avid gamer, he plays tabletop games in varying systems, a variety of video games on PC and console, and LARPs whenever he can make time for it. Jim currently resides mostly inside his own head, but his head can generally be found in the mountains outside Denver, Colorado.

Jim goes by the moniker Longshot in a number of online locales. He came by this name in the early 1990’s when he decided he would become a published author. Usually only 3 in 1000 who make such an attempt actually manage to become published; of those, only 1 in 10 make enough money to call it a living. The sale of a second series was the breakthrough that let him beat the long odds against attaining a career as a novelist.

All the same, he refuses to change his nickname.

Keith Robinson writes magical fantasy fiction for children and middle-grade readers, although his books are suitable for all ages.
The ISLAND OF FOG series features a young group of shapeshifters in a world of dragons, centaurs, mermaids, and other creatures from myth and legend, while the SLEEP WRITER books are pure sci-fi adventure fun with wormholes and portals, aliens and UFOs, robots and gadgets, weird and exotic monsters from space, and oh yes, a spot of time travel as well.

Also the author of QUINCY'S CURSE, and co-author of FRACTURED with Brian Clopper.

I work in the Information Technology industry in both technical and managerial ​roles. I started out in programming after securing my degree from the University of Evansville. My roles along the years have been primarily technical ones with computer systems. Along the way I found I loved to write and my creativity with Role Playing games from my youth and on up into my older years have given me a lot of material ideas for books that I know you'll enjoy.
I love writing Space Opera because the characters are what matters.

Leonardo Ramirez writes books for readers of all ages, including children’s steampunk and young adult fantasy.

From his humble beginnings in Bronx, New York, he’s bootstrapped his way into the hearts of his audience—young and old alike. This is truly a man who understands that life is for the living and he helps every one of his readers live life to the fullest through the wonderful adventures of his written words! His heart and motive have always been for people who are hurting. These can be kids who have had to suffer through child abuse or neglect or an absent parent which can be equally torturous as was the case in the popular Steampunk Kids Series, The Jupiter Chronicles. It can also be young girls who have suffered an assault like Haven did in Haven of Dante. Those are the kids and adults he wants to speak to because he’s been there.

His parents were divorced when Leonardo turned ten years old and what followed after was a tumultuous life filled with hardship that included poverty, abuse and homelessness.

But there is hope. And Leonardo Ramirez shares that hope through his body of work.

Nikki Nelson-Hicks has been described as the “Undisputed Queen of the Warped and the
Weird” and the “Unholy child of H.P. Lovecraft and Flannery O’Connor”.
She finds both terribly amusing.
She dips her pen in a plethora of genres from Horror to Holmesian, from Supernatural
Detective Pulp to Weird Western. If asked to describe what brand of horror she writes,
she prefers the term, “Quirky Spooky”.
Her love of the macabre started in early childhood and continued into adulthood. She has
done her own investigating of the Weird and the Occult while searching for Djinn in the
Spirit Caves of Oman, collecting pre-Islamic Zar rings used in exorcism rituals, and
sleeping in a haunted room in Iowa where four children were axed to death.
Her list of work includes Jake Istenhegyi: The Accidental Detective series, Sherlock
Holmes and the Shrieking Pits, Rumble, The Galvanized Girl, The Perverse Muse, The
Problem at Gruff Springs, Revenge of the Blood Red Maid and an anthology of horror
stories, Stone Baby and Other Strange Tales..
She also has written screenplays (Power, Corporate Politics, Angel Bar, Fine) and a
radio play, The Box.
